Review

Here is a deep and very outgoing look at Syrah that, while not at all stinting in ripeness, is fixed first and foremost on precise varietal fruit, and it shows an especially fine sense of proportion in both its structural balance and its seamless combination of dark berries, peppery spice and sweet oak. It is a wine with big muscles, but it impresses as having plenty of youthful brightness as well, and it has all the hallmarks of a Syrah that is destined to age famously for many years.
